RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 783160265 LA English T1 The year of dreaming dangerously A1 Žižek, Slavoj., PB Verso PP London; New York YR 2012 SN 9781781680421 1781680426 9781781680438 1781680434 AB Call it the year of dreaming dangerously: 2011 caught the world off guard with a series of shattering events. While protesters in New York, Cairo, London, and Athens took to the streets in pursuit of emancipation, obscure destructive fantasies inspired the world's racist populists in places as far apart as Hungary and Arizona, achieving a horrific consummation in the actions of mass murderer Anders Breivik. The subterranean work of dissatisfaction continues. Rage is building, and a new wave of revolts and disturbances will follow. Why? Because the events of 2011 augur a new political reality. These are limited, distorted--sometimes even perverted--fragments of a utopian future lying dormant in the present.
